The NIOSH Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards (NPG) is intended as a source of general industrial hygiene information on several hundred chemicals/classes for workers, employers, and occupational health professionals. The NPG does not contain an analysis of all pertinent data, rather it presents key information and data in abbreviated or tabular form for chemicals or substance groupings (e.g. cyanides, fluorides, manganese compounds) that are found in the work environment. The information found in the NPG should help users recognize and control occupational chemical hazards.
The Guides offer linked emergency response phone numbers. Tap the appropriate number to bring up your phone's dialer.
You can search by placard number, substance name, or for a specific guide. One tap takes you to the orange guide with details on toxicity, flammability, and spill procedures.
This app is built from the same data published in the official PHMSA ERG 2012 app. This app adds the ability to dial numbers with a touch.
Ad free, and requiring no special permissions. Please contact the developer for site licensing options.
Upgrade to DOT Placards Plus for additional features:
-Voice search. Speak a number to lookup the substance.
-Map specific placard numbers to locations.
-If you like the free app, please consider supporting the developers by purchasing DOT Placards Plus.
